Mountain Hike with Kids

Two days ago we hiked a mountain: Spåtind, 1414 meters above sea level. From where we parked the car, we walked 6 kilometers to the top of the mountain. What a great day! Beautiful views, lots of tasty berries and fresh water. It took us a little less than three hours up, and a little less than two hours down. (Breaks included) We hiked with our two youngest kids, aged 6 and 10, and not one single time did we hear them whine or complain. They simply had lots of fun, a wonderful experience for all of us.

Summer Family Visit

vi har en flott sommer i Norge i år. Disse bildene ble tatt for noen uker siden, da søsteren min og familien hennes var på besøk. Vi gikk ned til innsjøen, hvor vi koste oss på stranda og i det varme vannet. På vei hjem, plukket barna blomster i veikanten. Enkle, ekte gleder...
